Testing for Treatable Chemical Injury

Symptom/Effect

Test/Lab

Clinical Reason

  Fatigue

SpectraCell* Nutritional Panel (WBC)

Energy metabolism cofactors B1, B2, B3, Mg, Carnitine, Chromium, CoQ10

 

 

 

 

GI Panel: (DiagnosTechs)

Intestinal factors increasing fatigue

 

Amino acids – plasma (Genova)

Proteins for repair

 

Adrenal cortisol daily rhythm                                      (DiagnosTechs or Pharmasan)

Day time deficiency -fatigue                 Nighttime excess - disrupts sleep

 

fT3, fT4, TSH, TPO

Below midrange fT4 suggests iodine deficiency (avoid levels above 1mg Iodine). Below midrange fT4 to fT3 conversion suggests selenium deficiency

  Aching

RBC membrane essential fatty acids(Genova)

Need ample omega 3s -  EPA:DHA (3:1 ideal)

 

GI Panel (DiagnosTechs)

Factors increasing inflammation

 

Food Intolerance Testing

Delayed immune food responses -

 

     SigA – GI Panel, (DiagnosTechs)

increase inflammation

 

     IgG – (Commonwealth Medical Labs)

 

 

 

 

  Detoxification

SpectraCell Nutritional Panel

Adequacy of glutathione (major body detoxification) and substances which help it to work (Vit C, alpha lipoic acid, selenium), glutamine

 

 

Antioxidant status

 

 

 

 

Amino Acid Plasma (Genova)

Glycine, taurine, glutamine

 

 

 

 

ALT, AST, GGT

Recent liver cell death

 

Serum Sulfate, (Genova)

Essential for detoxification

 

 

 

  Estrogen Dominance

Pre, Peri or Post Menopausal

Reduce abnormal bleeding

Female Hormone Panel

Fibroids, insomnia, cancer risk

    (DiagnosTechs or Pharmasan)

 

  Testosterone Deficiency

Male or Female Hormone Panel,                              (DiagnosTechs or Pharmasan)

Libido, weakness of skeletal/cardiac muscle

 

 

 

  Sleep Disturbance

Neurotransmitter Sleep Panel-(Pharmasan) SpectraCell Nutritional Panel

Neuroexcitation – reduce w/ treatment          Low Mg, Folate, low B6 (to make GABA)

Labs listed are all CLIA-certified and high quality. All provide good scientific and medical support/help to doctors for understanding results and how to correct them. Dr. Ziem has no economic relation with any laboratory. For optimal health, goal for SpectraCell values is above midrange (except copper) and for B12 upper 20%.
